Information
Dirac is a first person multiplayer online survival/exploration game set in a strange surreal world. I've taken a different approach to development from most, focusing on getting a solid atmosphere and feel above traditional concepts of play.

Main page here: http://noctuelles.info/dirac

For more up to date developement info, follow me on twitter: https://twitter.com/#!/Orihaus

Playtest Information
Open to everyone! If you need access to the IRC channel, http://www.esper.net/publicirc.php channel: #merveilles. Just turn up and I'll send out builds.

I love the atmosphere in the video. Models are good, the music is good, and the whole thing sounds very mysterious.
Also I can't help but wonder: this is totally related to Paul Dirac isn't it ?

Yay! Everything is set up for the first alpha. It's in a really basic stage right now but it will be good to see if the networking is solid. Anyone who wants to have a go, join #merveilles IRC on esper.net at 10pm EST Sunday.

Well that went OK, even though only 1 person turned up. Any suggestions for a better time?

I am always in #merveilles and would love to test. 10pm EST is way too late where I am.

Maybe 8pm EST ?

I know, but a time that is right for you would be someone else's 6 in the morning. If there's enough demand maybe I could make 2 playtest streams at different times.
